Docklands Light Railway (DLR) workers could go on strike over two different pay disputes.

The workers are set to vote over strike action soon and results are going to be announced on 12 May.

According to the Standard, workers are in dispute with facilities company Interserve over wages. Separately, there is another dispute involving this year’s pay deal for directly employed staff.

Rail, Maritime and Transport union general secretary Mick Cash said: “The union has had no option but to move to a ballot of both the directly employed DLR staff and those hired in through Interserve in these two separate disputes.

“The union will not sit back while core issues on pay and working conditions are left unresolved.

“Our reps are in no doubt that we need to send a clear message to management that staff are prepared to fight to demand decent rewards and recognition, a safe working environment, decent working conditions and will not be forced into accepting inferior pay arrangements.

“The union remains available for talks in both disputes.”
